YRC Nigeria a proudly African vibrant clothing company started in 2008, birthed out of a need to express unique talent and creativity while providing people with an interesting and artistic angle on clothing style.
Headed by focused and innovative creative director; Ayotunde Okubanjo, winner of 2013 Nigerian Fashion and Design Week (NFDW).
Fashion designing started out as a hobby, until her wits drove her into profit making back in 2008. After paying her dues under several seasoned seamstresses to ensure that she mastered the craft. Ms Okubanjo’s expertise has earned her a position as a fashion consultant to top Nigerian female politicians. YRC has flourished under her direction and now has over 100 pieces of unique designs and couture pieces in its portfolio.
While there are just be a couple of hundreds of designs in her kits, YRC has proven to be yet another upcoming fashion brand to look out for, with offering of custom made pieces of different styles, fabric and embellishment, as may be desired by clients.
Presently catering predominantly to women, YRC presents a refreshing, yet distinct take on style, giving each customer an unforgettable experience the moment they put on any of our handmade, perfectly tailored garments. YRC has made the choice to be an innovator and not a spectator in an oversaturated fashion scene.
For YRC, experience is everything; we believe that the moment our customer steps out in a YRC couture piece, “the show” as we like to call it has begun. From the simple to most complex piece, each garment is crafted to invoke awe and unbridled aspiration to that level of style and luxury. It starts from the moment our pencil hits paper to sketch any of our unique designs, every stroke is made with the intent to command attention at first sight while creating a sensation with the sheer artistry and attention to detail in our garment. We guarantee that YRC look never gets replicated and everyone will surely want to wear that look; effortlessly elegant and glamorous.
YRC operates from a work studio in Ibadan, South West Nigeria, with two artisans working under the supervision of the creative director.
Our clients are located in Lagos and some parts of the US and UK, catering to their needs from our present location as immaculately as we prefer has posed a lot of challenges. Currently, YRC is only able to fully service a percentage of its customers due to geographical and financial constraints. With our zeal and passion to deliver African fashion from a global perspective, we will continue to push until we are known all over the world.
